SEDGWICK, Adam & Roderick Impey MURCHISON
1835. Geological Society of London. 1835. 4to. Recently bound on cream cloth-backed paper-covered boards; pp. 301 - 420, 1 folding hand-coloured map, 2 folding plates (1 hand-coloured), 3 other plates; very good indeed. Offprint from the Transactions of the Geological Society of London. This is the most substantial work to arise from Sedgwick and Murchison's trip to Alps in in 1829, which was itself one of the most extensive collaborations of their ill-fated friendship. This was an important paper in that it showed the extent of the Alpine limestone, which Sedgwick was able to correlate with strata in northeastern England, and the whole thrust of their argument is to do with stratigraphical continuity. Their main concern is to bridge the apparent faunal gap between secondary and tertiary strata, a concern that would later lead them to identify their rival systems.

The mathematician and astronomer Patrick Kelly 'was for many years master of the Finsbury Square Academy, London. Nothing is known of his parentage or early life; on 1 August 1789 he married Ann Plomley, who predeceased him. Their son, later the Revd Anthony Plomley Kelly (b. 1797), survived him. The Finsbury Square Academy, a finishing school teaching commercial and mathematical subjects, comprised a boarding-house, schools, and an observatory ... At the end of the eighteenth century English merchants lacked any reliable guide to rates of exchange comparable with J. E.

Moderate edge wear and rubbing to bindings. Modern bookplate to each front pastedown, occasional foxing. Front hinge of APPENDIX reinforced, rear hinge cracked. Very good. A large paper copy of this handsome work, offered with the rare illustrated appendix. Despite the failure of his trip in 1818, Ross set out in 1829 in the small ship, VICTORY, to find a northwest passage, but the vessel had to be abandoned in 1832. Ross and his party were rescued in the summer of 1833 in Lancaster Sound. In the meantime, Capt. George Back had set out in search of Ross. Back's account of his explorations was published the year after this volume appeared. The greatest scientific yield of the trip was the discovery of the Magnetic Pole. The many attractive plates are listed in detail in Abbey. A number of them depict the natives and events during the voyage. The lengthy appendix adds significantly to the work and includes additional color plates of Eskimos and a vocabulary of the Eskimo language, as well as a report about the natural history of the Arctic.

Ross, Sir John
A.W. Webster, 1835, Hardcover (Half Leather), Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket, First Edition. NARRATIVE OF A SECOND VOYAGE IN SEARCH OF A NORTH-WEST PASSAGE, and of a Residence in the Arctic Regions During the Years 1829, 1830, 1831, 1832, 1833. Including the Reports of Commander, now Captain James Clark Ross and The Discovery of the Northern Magnetic Pole. 1st Edition. xxxiii, (1), 740pp, illustrated with 31 plates, including 6 maps and charts, some outlined in colour and 2 folding, 24 views, some hand coloured. Appendix: xii, 120pp, cxliv, ciii. Half cream leather with dark brown leather boards, spine ruled with black leather spine labels, titled in gilt. After the embarrassment of Ross's first voyage in which he claimed to see the mountains in Lancaster Sound, it took him a decade to source private backing (he had lost the confidence of the British Admiralty) for a second trip. Ross travelled through Lancaster Sound into Prince Regent inlet and onto Boothia Peninsula, while on the way finding remnants of Parry's ship "Fury" which had been wrecked on North Somerset Island. For three consecutive winters Ross and his men were stuck in ice, but used the time wisely to learn mapping, hunting, sewing, transportation and language from the local inuit. Ross also organized lectures, lessons, and scientific inquiries, one of which discovered the North Magnetic Pole. In 1832 Ross finally abandoned the ship, and managed to live on supplies found at Parry's wreck. A whaler rescued Ross and his crew in 1833, and remarkably, it was the same ve … [Click Below for Full Description]

[DARLING: SUDDS AND THOMPSON CASE] PARLIAMENT OF GREAT BRITAIN.
London: Ordered, by the House of Commons, to be Printed, 1 September 1835. Folio, 168 pp., complete with the original blue printed wrappers bound in at end; edges uncut; a very attractive copy in a good modern binding of half blue morocco. A very good copy of this important report, detailing the sometimes controversial governorship of Ralph Darling, and of particular importance for the investigation into the Sudds and Thompson trial, the cause célèbre which divided Sydney, after Darling personally intervened to inflict harsh penalty on two private soldiers. Darling's chief attackers were William Charles Wentworth (and the Australian) and Captain Robison. 'An extremely important source of information with reference to this famous case' (Ferguson).The Select Committee cleared Darling of wrongdoing, and here publishes their findings along with the testimonies provided during the investigation. While the report completely exonerated Darling, it nonetheless prints in exhaustive detail the case against him, notably the interviews done with Captain Robert Robison of the Royal Veterans then serving in Newcastle. Robison protested the severity of the punishment, and saw it as a chance to make political capital against Darling, but was subsequently court-martialled and cashiered. The report, therefore, also goes into questions relating to grants of crown land, mismanagement of funds for the New South Wales Veteran Companies, and the freedom of the press. A couple of minuscule wormholes in margins of first seven leaves; otherwise in fine condition.

FIELD, George
FIELD, George. Chromatography; or, A Treatise on Colours and Pigments, and of their Powers in Painting, etc. xix, 276 pp. Illustrated with hand-coloured engraved frontispiece and one engraved plate. Folio, 327 x 240 mm, bound in modern blue cloth. London: Charles Tilt, 1835. First Edition of the most influential work on pigment chemistry written in England in the early 19th century. "In many ways, the most useful literary source concerning pigments rather than painting of the period is Field's Chromatography, published in 1835 . The first part of Chromatography is concerned with colour theory, followed by a section in which the nature and composition of individual pigments are discussed. The last part contains some comments on oils, varnishes and picture cleaning . From an historical point of view an important feature of the first edition is the inclusion of a large number of pigments, no matter how obscure, so that the book fills the gaps left by most of the early 19th-century books on painting" (R. D. Harley, Artists' pigments, pp. 27-28). Among the subscribers were both Constable and Turner. There were a number of later editions however the first is rare.

Locke, Richard Adams
New York Sun Office 1835.], N.p., n.d. [New York. Octavo, pp. [1] 2-28, uncut, sewn. First edition. First publication in book form of Locke's successful hoax perpetrated in series of six articles published in the NEW YORK SUN, 25-31 August 1835. The revelations, supposedly reprinted from the actually defunct EDINBURGH JOURNAL OF SCIENCE, pretended to reveal a discovery that men and animals existed on the moon and were so cleverly wrought that, for a short time, the report was given credence in scientific circles in the United States and Europe. The report was soon denounced as a hoax by the public press and Richard Adams Locke (1800-1871), a reporter for the SUN, was identified as the perpetrator of the "ingenious astronomical hoax." Interest in the lunar discoveries increased the SUN's circulation to more than nineteen thousand, the largest of any daily of that time. On Friday 28 August 1835, the SUN announced "that a pamphlet edition of the Supplement was being printed. The great work by Herschel, which would discuss his researches completely, was being prepared for publication at considerable price; the SUN would offer the popular substance for twelve or thirteen cents." According to William Gowans who reprinted the story in 1859, the owners of the SUN published sixty thousand copies of it in pamphlet form. The pamphlet was published in September 1835 and every copy was sold in less than a month. Nevertheless, the 1835 printings are rare and only a handful of copies survive. The SUN printed the undated pamphlet in two formats in 1835, one being an 11-page booklet printed … [Click Below for Full Description]

NAPIER, William Francis Patrick.
London: Thomas & William Boone, 1835-40. 6 volumes, octavo (223 x 135 mm) Contemporary black quarter morocco, probably French, marbled boards and endpapers, title gilt direct to the spines, flat bands with triple fillet gilt, panels in blind to the compartments. Just a little rubbed, some light browning and scattered foxing, but overall very good. 55 engraved battle plans. First editions of the last three volumes; the first three volumes are third editions. Napier's work certainly divided opinion. "Soult considered it 'perfect', Sir Robert Peel 'eloquent and faithful', the Spanish general Alava felt it too pro-French, and a British officer in India demanded satisfaction on his return for a 'most unfounded calumny' about his conduct at Barossa" (ODNB) As a result most volumes are prefixed with "justificatory pieces" in answer to Napier's critics. His controversy with Beresford over Albuera was particularly rancourous. Perhaps judgement is best left to the acknowledged master chronicler of the conflict, Sir Charles Oman, who described Napier's work as "magnificent (if somewhat prejudiced and biased)".

Locke, Richard Adams
N.p., n.d. [New York: New York Sun Office, 1835.]. Octavo, pp. [1] 2-28, uncut, sewn. First edition. First publication in book form of Locke's successful hoax perpetrated in series of six articles published in the NEW YORK SUN, 25-31 August 1835. The revelations, supposedly reprinted from the actually defunct EDINBURGH JOURNAL OF SCIENCE, pretended to reveal a discovery that men and animals existed on the moon and were so cleverly wrought that, for a short time, the report was given credence in scientific circles in the United States and Europe. The report was soon denounced as a hoax by the public press and Richard Adams Locke (1800-1871), a reporter for the SUN, was identified as the perpetrator of the "ingenious astronomical hoax." Interest in the lunar discoveries increased the SUN's circulation to more than nineteen thousand, the largest of any daily of that time. On Friday 28 August 1835, the SUN announced "that a pamphlet edition of the Supplement was being printed. The great work by Herschel, which would discuss his researches completely, was being prepared for publication at considerable price; the SUN would offer the popular substance for twelve or thirteen cents." According to William Gowans who reprinted the story in 1859, the owners of the SUN published sixty thousand copies of it in pamphlet form. The pamphlet was published in September 1835 and every copy was sold in less than a month. Nevertheless, the 1835 printings are rare and only a handful of copies survive. The SUN printed the undated pamphlet in two formats in 1835, one being an 11-page booklet prin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, Chez CXharrière, Fabricant d'Instruments et Chez J.B. Baillière Libr., 1835, 8°, 14 pp., 1 gefalt. lith Tafel mit 16 Figs., feiner Halbledereinband; etwas fleckig. A very rare booklet by Charrière about his improved rowel saw combined with a trepan! First Print - A very rare illustrated publication about a very important and technical neurosurgical saw invented by Charrière and Thompson in 1835 and here described in details. Furthermore, this booklet is one of Charrière's first publications (the fourth according to the bio-bibliography on Frédéric Charrière by Jimmy Drulhon). "In 1816, at the age of 13, Charrière arrived in Paris as an apprentice cutler. Born on 19 March 1803 at Cerniat en Gruyere, in the Swiss canton of Fribourg, where his uncle practiced the same trade, he was raised by his grandfather because his parents had moved to Paris, where his father was employed as a bank clerk. In 1820, after the death of his master, the young Swiss cutler took over the workshop, then situated in the courtyard of St.-Jean-de-Latran on the left bank of the Seine (gone today, as a consequence of urban development). In 1826, Charrière married Madeleine Elisa Berrurier, the seventeen-year-old daughter of a butcher. According to the Notice biographique of Dr. Achille Chéreau (1817-1885), the real commencement of Charrière's career dates from his introduction to Guillaume Dupuytren (1777-1839), surgeon-in-chief at the Hôtel Dieu hospital in Paris. Dupuytren made him "his personal supplier, furnishing him with models to emulate, instilling, feeding, in a sense, the spirit of inv … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Printed by W. Clowes and Sons, 1835. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine. London, Printed by W. Clowes and Sons, 1835. Octavo, 44 pages. Original cloth (a little mottled), all edges gilt; three small holes in the inner margins where stab-sewn (as originally issued); a fine copy. A rare item with the most exquisite provenance. This is a presentation copy, in what we take to be a presentation cloth binding, inscribed on the front flyleaf 'To Geo. F. Angas Esqre with Mr Manns respects'. Neatly folded over the cloth boards is a contemporary thick paper cover, signed and inscribed on the front panel 'George Fife Angas [written over his pencilled signature 'G.F. Angas']. On Thursday Sept. 10, 1835. Dinner given to Govr Hindmarsh at the Albion Tavern, Aldersgate Street, London. Report of Speeches &c'. Angas has also written on the spine, between a series of decorative inked double-rules, 'Report of Public Dinner. South Australia'. On the title page, after the words 'at a Dinner given', he has written in ink 'on Thursday Evening Sept. 10, 1835, at the Albion Tavern, Aldersgate Street'. On the evening in question, a 'very influential and highly respectable company, consisting of 110 gentlemen, sat down to an excellent dinner ... The Chair was taken by Colonel Torrens'. The report includes the various speeches, toasts and letters of congratulations, with the main ones being delivered by Torrens, Hindmarsh, and Angas himself.

LAPLACE Pierre Simon, Marquis de
Paris, Bachelier, 1835. In-4° (25 x 22), pp. VIII+XIV+(2)+474+(2), con 1 ritratto di Laplace inciso su rame in apertura. Leg. mezza tela ottocentesca, titoli in oro. Fioriture sparse, ma buon es. per il resto. (8176) Edizione definitiva di questa Exposition che il celebre matematico e astronomo francese volle pubblicare per offrire in forma più "divulgativa" le teorie formulate nella sua Méchanique Célèste, basata su complesse dimostrazioni e formule matematiche che la riservavano ad una ristretta cerchia. L'opera, la cui prima stesura era apparsa nel 1796, venne crescendo nell'arco di un trentennio, ed ebbe una grande influenza sulla evoluzione delle teorie astronomiche del XIX secolo, con l'affermazione dell'origine del sistema solare dallo sfaldamento di una vasta nebulosa. Il testo riporta sempre la dicitura sesta edizione, come quelle di Parigi e di Bruxelles del 1827, ma la presente è da considerare effettivamente come la vera edizione definitiva, apparsa postuma, rivista e corretta da Laplace poco prima della sua morte (1827); in essa egli aveva voluto riformulare diversi capitoli rispetto a quella del 1827. "L'Auteur s'occupait de la reimpression de cet ouvrage, lorsqu'il fut enlevé au monde savant; plusieurs notes de sa main ont pu être recueillies dans cette nouvelle édition" (dall'Avertissement dell'editore). In apertura è collocato l'Éloge historique de M. le marquis de Laplace, scritto dal barone Fourier. Zeitlinger, n. 2437.

Madras: Printed by order of government. Vepery Mission Press, 1835. FIRST EDITIONS. G&M 3738. The first important monograph on beri-beri; "a classic account, in which the author brought together all that was known about the disease in his day" (G&M). Leaving aside the brief seventeenth century accounts by Bondt and Tulp (G&M 3736 and 3737 respectively), "Malcolmson's is the only significant study of beri-beri during the major phase of European expansion. The essential scientific work on beri-beri did not take place until after 1885 when the Japanese Baron Takaki demonstrated the dietary origin of the disease. "Malcolmson was assistant surgeon of the Madras Medical Establishment at the time of writing, and submitted both the essay on beri-beri and that on rheumatism which accompanies it for a prize of 500 rupees in 1833. Rare, as most Indian imprints are" (Jeremy Norman, Catalogue 16, also with both works in one volume, also a presentation copy).2 works in 1 volume, 8vo, pp. (ii), iv, (ii), 343, 1 hand-coloured lithographed plate; 1 leaf (blank), pp. (ii), 98.

And with the ownership signatures of B. S. Page, April, 1931, on the versos of the front free endpapers of the first and second volumes. It was Page who took over the last part of the translation when MacKenna (1872-1934) found it impossible to continue. Stephen MacKenna's translation of Plotinus, first published by the Medici Society from 1917-1930, is considered one of the great translations in the English language. It was MacKenna's discovery of the present set of Plotinus's work in a St. Petersburg bookshop in Russia that inspired him to embark upon what would become his life's work. MacKenna was working as the chief European foreign correspondent for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World, and covering the Russian Revolution of 1905. As John Dillon records in his introduction to the Penguin edition of MacKenna's translation of The Enneads of Plotinus, "In the course of covering this event (which produced many memorable incidents, including visiting Tolstoy, in company with the Irish nationalist leader Michael Davitt), he was brought first into contact with Plotinus in St Petersburg, where he chanced upon a copy of Creuzer's Oxford edition of the Enneads, which he then began to read while confined temporarily in his hotel room.
